2 years ago, in 2014, Coffee Con made its first appearance in New York City. A consumer-based and oriented event, it's akin to that of Comic Con, Video Con, a conference for fans, by fans. In this case, a platform for both coffee lovers and vendors alike to join in a day of coffee related festivities. This involves a lot of coffee consumption, caffeination, and relationships formed over the craft of coffee.
In their return to New York, Coffee Con approached the Coffee Club at NYU for partnership. We happily and gratefully accepted to staff the event with willing and excited volunteers from the club. Around 25 NYU students participated, supporting in setting up brewing classrooms, demonstrations, assisting in checking-in and registration, escorting and guiding attendees to appropriate booths and events.
We had a tremendous experience; and we hope that both attendees and vendors enjoyed their time at Coffee Con in Industry City. We especially thank Patricia and Kevin, organizers at Coffee Con, for hosting us and allowing us to be a part of a landmark event. Until next time!
